dosa recipes are integral part of any south indian family and so it is in my family too. while dosa is a common term for any crepe like bread, but there are several varieties which varies to each region. pesarattu dosa is one such famous dosa from telugu cuisine but has spread all over south india. i was exposed to this recipe from my mother who spent her college days in guntur. even though her stay in guntur was very brief, but she has developed a great taste for andhra veg cuisine and especially pesarattu.

pesarattu recipe

even though preparation of pesarattu is very simple, i would like to highlight some tips and suggestions. firstly, i have added 2 tsp channa dal with moong dal and then grounded together. channa dal helps to give nice texture to moong dal dosa, however even rice grains can be added too. secondly, sprouted moong beans can also be added to make it even more healthier and nutritious. lastly, you can also add 1 tsp of jeera or cumin while grounding batter. this adds extra flavour to dosa and also helps for digestion.

finally i would request you to visit my other dosa recipes collection from my blog. this includes, set dosa, sponge dosa, neer dosa, rava dosa, masala dosa, mysore masala dosa, bread dosa and oats dosa recipe. in addition do visit my other south indian recipes collection like,
